Born on 10th December, 1981, the biggest drummer my favorite band could ever get, Avenged Sevenfold, died yesterday.
Shocked, I still can’t believe Rev has departed and left all the other member behind. Still unkown, Jimmy’s death is being investigated by the Orange County Coroners office. Speculations report “drugs overdose” but we don’t wanna start rumours if nothing confirmed was reported do we? The authorities although, reported that he died from natural causes.
This great drummer, who toured a couple months here in Portugal, is now lost, but not from our hearts. His memory and all of his drum beats shall be always recorded in our mind, body and soul.
The band posted a statement on the official website:
It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we tell you of the passing today of Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan. Jimmy was not only one of the world’s best drummers, but more importantly he was our best friend and brother. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jimmy’s family and we hope that you will respect their privacy during this difficult time.
Jimmy you are forever in our hearts.
We love you.
M Shadows, Synyster Gates, Zacky Vengeance and Johnny Christ
May Jimmy Sullivan, known as The Reverend, shall forever be in our hearts.
